Project Virtual Reality Check is a initiative by Ruben Spruijt and Jeroen van de Kamp to investigate VDI infrastructure compared to a virtualized SBC infrastructure (among other things). You can read more about VRC here:

So far, Project Virtual Reality check has been a massive undertaking, which generated much interest over the years. The results have been presented at all the big technology events over the world and their findings and best practices have been published on different occasions. However, one thing was clear: many discussions in the VDI and SBC space are not just about performance best practices and product comparisons.

As a result the VRC team decided to boot up the first edition of the Project Virtual Reality Check “State of the VDI and SBC union” survey. http://www.brianmadden.com/blogs/jeroenvandekamp/archive/2012/09/26/announcing-project-vrc-s-quot-state-of-the-vdi-and-sbc-union-quot-survey.aspx

It was the VRC Team’s aim to ask all the relevant questions, both functional and technical. These questions range from “What are the most important design goals set for this environment”, to “Which storage is used”, to “How are the VM’s configured”. The questions are comprehensive, and relevant to everyone in building VDI and SBC environments. The aim of Project VRC is to repeat the survey at least once a year. This will allow us to see how our industry is changing in practice.

Within a couple of weeks more than 600(!) people started the survey:

The VRC team asked us to help promote this survey, which we are glad to do. Within the first week already more than 600 people have started the survey. So if you are in any way involved in the Hyper-V and VDI community, please go ahead and participate in this survey!
